Comments about High Country Gardens Heterotheca jonesii:
Ordered a full flat of 32 plants. When they arrived I told my husband that they didn't look like they would survive. We spent the next day preparing the soil and planting all 32 plants. By the end of the summer only three plants had survived. I think these were shipped to my zone before they were able to withstand the cold spring nights. Very disappointed in these plants. I must say customer service was very accommodating when I contacted them. I chose not to replace the plants at that time and received a refund for all dead plants.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Hi Winded in Wyoming,We are so sorry to hear about how your plants were received! We do thank you for your feedback regarding your shipping time. We try our best to plan the best time to plant based on growing zones but as you know, there are many variables we cannot always be prepared for. Any feedback you have regarding shipping times is always very much appreciated. We are glad that you received a refund for the Creeping Goldnaster. We hope that you'll give this species another try this spring as this is such an amazing groundcover! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Slow starter, but might work out
from Klamath Falls, OR
Took most of the summer to establish, but finally bloomed and looks like it'll survive. Deer & rabbits left it alone. Recommend planting in larger numbers, one just doesn't make an impact. We'll see how it competes/blends with the creeping thyme and phlox it's mixed with.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Hi Neums,We are happy to hear your Creeping Goldnaster is surviving. Often many perennials wont show much new growth the first year as they are establishing to their new home. Please keep us posted with its progress this spring. Any feedback you may have regarding our perennials is always encouraged. Our gardening experts are available by phone, email or live chat 6 days a week for any questions, comments or concerns you may have. Happy Gardening!

Holding their own and already a flower
By Crickets Meyeres
from Kanab UT alkaline soil drought soil
I ordered two of these and they arrived early spring. I planted alongside other evergreen ground covers in a small test area. As is fairly usual, they haven't grown in size yet. however, it is now late spring and one of them has produced a bloom! I wasn't expecting that. :-)
from Salt Lake City
Mine are in smaller spaces among large boulders. They were slow to take hold but are doing well after their first winter. I live in the hills north of Salt Lake City. I plan to order more.
I wish this product work but it died fast.
from Denver, CO
The plant didn't look very healthy when I got it and didn't make it. Other plants did well. Could be the particular one I got. It looks beautiful if it would live.
Merchant response: Good Day Ben, We are so sorry to hear of your disappointment! Most of our perennials are sent with very little top growth as we are constantly cutting back new growth to ensure the plant will have strong, healthy roots and to help reduce damage in transit. Because we force our perennials to focus on their root system, often our perennials are slow to start as they are establishing. However, once established, they take off! Please know that we are truly committed to your success which is why we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all our products. If the Heterotheca jonesii doesn't meet your expectations this spring, we encourage you to give us a call at 1-800-925-9387 One of our friendly representatives would be more than happy to go over your options so that you can get the results you paid for!Happy Gardening!
Looked nice but only 2 plants survived a mild winter
from Clay Center, Ks
Packaging is great but sometimes they are packaged so tightly the plants can't breathe and arrive at my place moldy or yellow
Merchant response: Good Day Suzyq,We thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. This is very helpful for us. We want the plants to be secure in transit to ensure less stress and so that the soil does not fall out. However, there is secure and there is packing too tight. We take your feedback very seriously and notified our quality control department of this. This is certainly NOT what you should have received. As you know, we do fully guarantee all of our products up to a year from the day your order has shipped. We see that you spoke to a representative about this and received a replacement. Please keep us posted on the progress of your replacement. We are truly committed to your success and want you to feel you got what you paid for and more! Should you require any further assistance, please don't hesitate to call us at 1-800-925-9387 Our hours are Monday - Friday 7am - 5pm MTHappy Gardening!
